Poison Ivy

We learn from Biblical studies that people with leprosy had to live outside of the city and yell “unclean” whenever a healthy person was near. They were individuals that no one wanted to be near for fear of catching the disease themselves. There is a modern day equivalent with which I am afflicted. It’s called ” the poison ivy.”

I have told my friends and family that I do not have leprosy. That they cannot catch the disease of “the ivy” by being near me or touching me. Although the rash looks similar, the disease can only spread through the plant itself and not through a person. Here are two websites to back up my claims: http://www.poison-ivy.org/html/faq.htm and http://www.webmd.com/allergies/tc/poison-ivy-oak-or-sumac-what-happens

Please be informed. And let’s treat all people with respect and dignity…even those of us who have unsightly rashes on their face.
